The impacts of digital technologies on mental health and addictions: Exploring the impacts of dating apps on mental health among adults

This webinar will share evidence-informed knowledge and lived experience reflections on the current state of dating apps and their impacts on mental health. Platforms like Tinder, Grindr and Bumble, for example, are immensely popular tools that people use to connect with one another for casual encounters and meaningful relationships. However, there is increasing evidence that using these apps can lead to negative impacts on mental health (e.g., feelings of anxiety and loneliness) and self-esteem.

What do we know about the risks and benefits of using dating apps? Are there new or emerging behavioural patterns worth exploring, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic when the number of people using dating apps has skyrocketed? The audience will be asked to reflect on such questions in relation to their clinical work and/or research, as well as have an opportunity to engage in a Q&A discussion.
